Via QJ.NETCan you imagine Lara Craft wielding a gunblade?
Looks like the future of Lara Croft is in the hands of Final Fantasy studio, Square Enix. The latest news is that Eidos Interactive, the company that owns the Tomb Raider franchise, will be bought by Squeenix for GBP 84.3 million (a whopping US$ 120.8 million).
This is good news for Eidos, who's been having rough patches for some time now and has been looking to merge with other studios since last year, when they were still called SCi Entertainment. Squeenix's investors aren't jumping for joy though. When this news hit, Eidos' shares in the market jumped, Squeenix's shares dropped.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what Squeenix plans to do with some of Eidos' franchises, like Hitman, Kane & Lynch, Legacy of Kain, and Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. Clearly not their style when it comes to games.
Hmmm, is this just me or is S-E becoming the next EA?
